  1. Gas exchange

    Gas exchange is a biological process through which different gases are transferred in opposite directions across a specialised respiratory surface. Gases are constantly required and produced as a by-product of cellular and metabolic reactions so an efficient system for their exchange is extremely important. It is linked with respiration in animals, and both respiration and photosynthesis in plants. In respiration, oxygen is required to enter cells whilst waste carbon dioxide must be removed – the opposite is true for photosynthesis, where CO2 enters plants and O2 is released. The exchange of gases essentially occurs as a result of diffusion down a concentration gradient – gas molecules moving from an area of high concentration → low concentration.
